Steve will have the responsibility to grow sales while improving production efficiency for General Line Fabrication, Laser, Production Cutting and Power at CTI facilities in Romeoville, Locust and Owatonna.

Raul will coordinate the combined production resources of Distribution, Laser, Fabrication, Welding and Bending to fully utilize technology and efficiency improvements in the highly competitive markets CTI serves.

Raul has 28 years of operational experience specific to our industry. He holds an Industrial Engineering degree from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, as well as a certification in Strategic Metals Management from Washington University. This makes him uniquely qualified to successfully direct the operations of the combined Romeoville facility.
